The purpose of this seminar will be to enhance and refine the clinical skills of the participants by applying contemporary concepts of therapeutic action to the clinical process.  The format will be strictly case presentations.  The seminar leader will begin with a discussion of his own cases, each of which will have the purpose of illustrating at least one contemporary principle of therapeutic action, and the attendees will have a chance to discuss and critique the work of the seminar leader.  The last half of the seminar will consist of discussion of cases currently in psychotherapy with the seminar participants who will be encouraged to compare the technique they typically use with the contemporary techniques set forth in the seminar.

Participants should come prepared to discuss their own cases from any theoretical position they choose.  Special attention will be given to comparing the technique used by the seminar participants to contemporary analytic technique.  The emphasis throughout will be on therapeutic action so that techniques will be discussed from the viewpoint of what it brings to the concept of therapeutic action.  As many participants as can possibly be engaged in the discussion will be encouraged to take part in the discussion and critique of  clinical technique.


  1. At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be able to describe an object relations approach to analytic therapy. 
  2. At the conclusion of this presentation the participants will be able to interpret clinical material from an object relations perspective. 
  3. At the conclusion of this presentation the participants will be able to describe the difference between an object relations approach to therapeutic action and the traditional psychoanalytic concept of therapeutic action.
